The point is that all my ideas reside on my computer, so when I turn on the computer it's like walking through a toy store, oooo look at this, oh yes, I wanted to do this, no I think I'll do this first, oh wait here are a few things that all almost done, I'll work on those, maybe not, do I have email, oops haven't check my twitter, oh no, I haven't posted anything of my Facebook fan page wall, man that Tumbler account hasn't had a post in months, mmmm Pinterest.....Well you get the picture!
So on Friday I checked my email early in the morning, turned off the computer, and told myself no computer until Monday morning. Look what I accomplished:
My dress form has a new cover, I needed a solid color the patterned one wasn't working for product pictures.
I finished some alterations that have been on my pile for months:
I actually sewed a sample for my sewing class (we are doing a Beach Tote):
I made my daughter a skirt (she's been waiting for ever!):
And I finished a bag to put in my Etsy shop (not listed yet, I was having trouble with the lighting in the photos):
I think I found myself a new routine, No more computer access on Fri. Sat. and Sun. My online presences isn't that big anyways, I'm sure I won't be terribly missed for 3 days out of the week. Plus I'm sure I will have more to show and talk about during the 4 days I am on the computer, If I do this.
How do you guys find time to finish the projects you start???
